Donovan Thinks His Ex-Gators Could Have A Good Draft Night

Florida’s Billy Donovan thinks tomorrow night might be a good night to be a Gator.  Asked about the prospects of Chandler Parsons, Vernon Maxwell and Alex Tyus, UF’s coach believes all three could be drafted into the NBA:

“My guess right now is (Parsons will go) somewhere late first round or early second round.  I think Alex and Vernon have got the potential to go somewhere in the second round — probably mid to late.”

Parsons has been climbing some draft boards actually jumping into the first round according to some prognosticators.  It would be a surprise if Maxwell or Tyus were selected.
